I go to court in a little over a month for a DWI. A lot of people have advised me to look into getting Deferred Adjudication. Should I have an attorney when I go to court in order to get it? Thanks
First and foremost, DWI is not eligible for deferred adjudication -- has not been eligible for almost 30 years. Second,...
I was charged with aggravated assault with a motor vehicle, but it was brought down to a misdemeanor..It's my first dwi.. What would be the max punishment.. I've been offered 90 days which I will do weekends, 1 year probation, and $2000.00 fine.. Is this fair since I wasn't charged with felony
Is this fair? Rather than weighing the equity of the situation you should consult with your attorney. Ask him/her what...
I got my car stuck in a ditch and I had to ditch my car because I had a few drinks before the happening. It was towed to a storage and towing facility.
It is possible that you may face charges of leaving the scene of an accident, if you admit to driving, but that is...
I have not been convicted. I'm still in a discovery stage of it with my attorney. Just curious if it will show up on my background check considering I have not been convicted.
It should show up that you have been "charged". It should not show up in a check for convictions. The type of record...

I'm deployed to Afghanistan. I tried to handle it before I left. I will not be home till end of July 2015 making it over 2 years sense the arrest. The court said I was OK to deploy handle it when I get home. But isn't there a statue of limitations on misdemeanor Crimes? My bac was 0.027 I'm facing a class A misdemeanor. I didn't sign anything to hold the case my lawyer said the court said I was good. I'm in the us army sitting over in Afghanistan stressing my home coming.
First, thank you for your service. I am not licensed to practice law in Texas, but the statute of limitations issue is...
I was in a wreck in 2008, which resulted in 2 back surgeries, and knee surgery, so I was prescribed pain medication for a few years. After all surgeries, and pain management, I was put on Buprenorphine, to help body adjust, and also for acute back pain management. Every Rx I've had, were 100% legitimate. I was arrested for a 2nd DWI in 2013, my first DWI was in 2002. My probation officer wants a letter from my doctor explaining the need to be on this medication, and my PO said she wants to make a plan to get me off of this medication. I've have several UA's, and all were 100% clean. So I don't understand what the problem is. If it doesn't fail any of the "testing for" medications/substances, why is it an issue? Is she allowed (legally) to make decisions for my medical treatment?
Your PO is not a doctor and has no say in your medical care. As long as the medications are prescribed to you and you...
